I’m unfollowing more accounts.

Posted: November 11, 2021 in Uncategorized

The Twitter following purge I’m conducting is going really well. I’m under 2,900 already. I used to follow 17,800 accounts. I follow 2,866.

Why am I unfollowing so many accounts?

Twitter has messed me around. I spent years trying to get to the 18k followers, which was a prediction by Twitter analytics. All was going well till 2016. Then it seems I hit a brickwall. Where previously I’d have numerous followers per week, a positive river of newbies, It quickly went into a trickle. Other accounts have also seen this occur. Atheist accounts that zoomed up to 20k, just juddered to a halt. None could gather the following that they had before. Where previously followers numbers were on a steady climb, it was now going upwards in a slow tentative way.

Twitter obviously crippled many accounts and I was one of them!  Algorithms have seemingly held me back, so I’m no longer doing the follow\followback. I’m dropping my Following list to the bare minimum, to those who followback, reply daily and who could be called “My Regulars” and I’m going to set new strict guidelines for myself. My followers will have to meet my new criterion for me following them and then hopefully, I’ll be only tweeting those ppl. Some interesting bigger accounts that never follow back will be added to Private Twitter Lists.

To be unfollowed:

I’m now unfollowing all those accounts with pronouns he\him, she\her they\them etc You’ve proven yourself captured by woke ideology.

I’m now unfollowing all those accounts with #BLM in their bios.Of course black lives do matter and I support that, I just feel that the Organization BLM is Marxist and anyone supporting them has now bought into the ideology that I’d be no longer happy to support\be interested in following.

I’m done with anyone belonging to American Atheists. Most seem to be woke. I’ll think I’ll only concentrate upon British Atheists.

Any account that supports the organization Stonewall will also be unfollowed. It’s proven to be captured by wokeism.

Any account that’s an avowed nazi\Hitlerite, fascist, communist, (Leninist, Trotskyist), anarchist or neo-Marxist(see above), will be unfollowed. Traditionalists, even Catholic Trads will still be followed. Find them interesting and such a contrast to the wokeists. Certain ruralistic anarchists\Socialist agrarian will be followed still.

Any account that is tweeting 90% pro-Trump, unfollowed. To me He was unfit to be president, so those that love him and still bang on and on and on about him being so great, day in day out, is a bit much.

Any account that is tweeting 90% anti-Trump, I’ll have to unfollow them too. Totally boring now. Move on.

Any account under 250 followers, I’ll definitely unfollow too!

Any account under 1,000 followers, with a few exceptions*, I’ll unfollow.

* The exceptions are my Regulars. Aka People who I interact on a daily basis with or who provide valuable information or insight on the things I tweet about. Anyone over 925 might not be unfollowed as hopefully they will reach 1,000 fairly soon. 

I may unfollow accounts with under 2,500 followers in the future. Depending on how my list looks in January, 2022.

I may at one point start to only follow accounts that have 5,000 followers and above.

Any account that hasn’t tweeted since Jan, 2020…also unfollowed.

This has to be done as I approach the 10th year on Twitter. Anniversary in August\September, I believe. 

New target for following is 2,500. If those I unfollow see this and then unfollow me….I’ll just point out that I am listing you on private Twitter lists, which will mean I see your tweets much more often. Since unfollowing all those accounts, I am now seeing ppl that I haven’t seen for a very long time. Basically, by unfollowing you, I’ll see your tweets!

So don’t unfollow me, unless you’re doing the same, perhaps?
